Excerpt
The Coming Of Lad: In the mile-away village of Hampton, there had been a veritable epidemic of burglaries?ranging from the theft of a brand-new ash-can from the steps of the Methodist chapel to the ravaging of Mrs. Blauvelt?s whole lineful of clothes, on a washday dusk. Up the Valley and down it, from Tuxedo to Ridgewood, there had been a half-score robberies of a very different order?depredations wrought, manifestly, by professionals; thieves whose motor cars served the twentieth century purpose of such historic steeds as Dick Turpin?s Black Bess and Jack Shepard?s Ranter. These thefts were in the line of jewelry and the like; and were as daringly wrought as were the modest local operators? raids on ash-can and laundry.
